    Childcare will be provided by the Clark PTO. Here’s all the details you need to know:

    • You DO NOT need to sign up in advance.
    • Childcare will be located in “the cave” which is located just down the hall from the gym at the bottom of the stairs (across from the music room).
    • Only children that are potty trained are allowed.
    • Childcare is free thanks to your contributions to the Clark PTO Annual Fund.

    In an effort to make the childcare experience the best it can be, we are asking for donations of items you may have lying around your house such as coloring books, activity books, crayons, markers, smallish toys, DVDs, etc. These items will be used during childcare for Parent Teacher Conferences and childcare for monthly PTO meetings. Donations can be sent with your child to school and dropped off in the bin in the office.

    Please contact Jenny Crawford if you have any questions.
